Had these cards for the last 30 years...finally got round to sending them in. I think the grades are pretty fair (though I felt the 80-81 Gretzky had a shot at a "9")...

Messiers:

Nice cards Blair. I love that 80-81 Gretz.

Thanks for the comments, guys! The 80-81 Gretzky was a fave of mine, for sure.

Funny enough, the Mess that got the 86 grade I always felt was the strongest of the 3. I can see how the one that got 88 has a sharper cut, but I always felt the centering and the stronger, richer color on the 86 made it a better card - I still prefer it despite the grade assigned.

Cheers,
Blair

I thought the same thing you just said on the 86 card.
